Why did you choose Shippensburg?
I decided to come to Shippensburg because of the extra-curricular program and clubs that they offered. I enjoy being active, meeting new people, and experiencing new things. Shippensburg has offered me so many leadership opportunities that will translate directly into professional position that I seek in the future.
What is your favorite thing Ship has to offer?
Shippebsburg is a "change of pace" compared to
Philadelphia, Shippensburg is much more relaxed. I find that peaceful.
If you could give any one piece of advice to incoming students, what would it be?
Besides doing work
and communicating properly, I would say don't forget to grow personally.
Academics are important, but take on those academic challenges head on. Find
positivity and motivation out of every obstacle you may face. College is an
amazing, just make sure you enjoy the ride.
